Escondido, California (PRWEB) January 5, 2009
Pensions & Investments Magazine recently selected TRI-AD for the second year in a row for the magazine's prestigious "Eddy" Award, recognizing excellence in investment education.
TRI-AD's award-winning submission consisted of a campaign centered around TRI-AD's "Choose Your Future Today" 401(k) education and enrollment brochure. The brochure and accompanying materials such as informative bilingual newsletters use a lively travel theme to encourage the reader to "set your retirement destination," "choose your [investment] vehicle," and understand "the investing roller coaster ride."
The notification of award in 2009 follows a first-place win in both the Plan Sponsor and Service Provider categories in 2008 with a custom campaign tailored to a particular client's unique culture. TRI-AD's Communications Team received input from investment advisory firm MJM 401(k) for both the 2008 and 2009 award-winning entries.
TRI-AD Vice President Thad Hamilton expressed his excitement over the news that TRI-AD is receiving a second "Eddy" Award. Said Mr. Hamilton, "Given today's economic climate, investment education for 401(k) plan participants is more important than ever before. It's especially significant for us to secure a second award, given that we share the honor with some of the largest and most recognizable names in the retirement plan industry. We feel that being smaller and more nimble allows us to really focus on identifying the changing investment education needs of participants."
Award winners will learn their award level (first, second or third place) at the upcoming Pensions & Investments Defined Contribution conference in February, 2009.
